Not fair

''Presidential campaigns participating in the Illinois Republican Presidential Straw Poll are not charged a fee for their participation.

One of two requirements dictates a presidential candidate’s participation in the Illinois Republican Presidential Straw Poll: 1.) Polling above 5% in national, independent polls; or 2.) Having participated in any of the previous nationally televised debates in 2007.''

I guess they don't want Cox there...........
